Reading is the essential skill all children need in order to learn other subjects in school. Having fun while learning to read is a focus in every classroom at CES. Students work daily to increase their skills in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, accuracy, decoding, comprehension, sight words and expanding their vocabulary. Mrs. Knaup, Mrs. Coughlin, Mrs. White and Mrs. Kouba offer reading interventions at Columbia Elementary School. Some of the interventions include: Reading Recovery - a one-on-one daily, intensive reading intervention. Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) - 30 minute sessions in a small group to strengthen a child’s reading and writing skills. Guided Reading Groups - 30 minute sessions to improve a student's fluency, accuracy, comprehension, sight word recognition and decoding skills. We are grateful to our aides, classroom teachers, special education teacher and Reading Interventionists for keeping reading a top priority at CES! 💙💛📘

Tonight the Columbia School Board considered a suggestion from the administration to join some other districts in Jackson County by attending school for half days this week. The superintendent and a representative of the Columbia Education Association, agreed to alter the school calendar by scheduling half days on Thursday and Friday, in addition to our traditional Wednesday half day. Not only will this address the affects of the heat on children wearing masks while riding busses, it will give our teachers an opportunity to review and reflect their first days of school during this critical time.

Our school library is beginning something new. When students check out their library book they are given a large plastic ziplock style bag to keep their book in. The bag is labeled with CES library. The purpose of the bag is to protect books when they are inside back packs from getting torn, wet, or having something spill on them inside backpacks. Thank you very much to the PTO for providing these protective bags! #WeLoveBooks
